Facing Fears!!



Anyone remember me telling you my kids have a fear of anything in a costume?   I mean a real fear with shaking, crying, and screaming involved? We go out of our way all the time to avoid anything in a costume.   I have two kids immediately hiding behind me if there is any costumed person aproaching in a parade.  We even almost missed a friends birthday party because my daughter was so afraid of Chuck E at Chuck E Cheese but I convinced her to go but she left the area when Chuck E came out.  

Last week we went to our local fire station for fire safety awareness night and at the beginning of the night she was her normal self and avoided the Sparky the fire dog.   Then as we were waiting in line and she was kind of hiding behind me when Sparky approached but as she watched her friend interact with him she all of a sudden burst forth with a new trust and no fear attitude and hugged Sparky!   Quite literally I paused with my mouth hanging open unable to move as I processed what I was watching!  I did make my daughter hug again so I could snap a picture to remind me of this awesome day where BOLDNESS and TRUST were displayed!   Now to get my son on that same level...it took my daughter till she was 7 and my son is 3 so we shall wait and see.  

What are your kids afraid of?

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most
